I can't believe that its been a week since I have posted here in my little blog. I am feeling bad that I have ignored it for a week, but its been a busy one at work. When the weather turns nice and spring has sprung, well, my kids at work decide its time to bail on school and have fun. Can't say as I blame them, I want to do the same thing, lol.
It certainly has felt very springy this week. Temps have been in the 60s and 70s and sunny every day. So when I get home,,I am out playing in the flower beds or just chillin in my pond zone. Can't bring myself to stay inside after being inside all day on a computer. So if I am missing in action during this time of year that is the reason.
The back is finally hurting less but still taking it easy on doing alot of bending. Thats hard to do when I have alot of flower beds that are begging for attention. I just get my handy dandy cart and sit and roll on it and clean out the beds and talk to the flowers.
On my last post I spouted out that I was going to do a contest and I am still going to do it. My I think I am going to wait and combine it with Lisa from "Heart of the nest" One Heart-One Art" event. Its just a little simple contest, but it will be easier on me to do it then as I am will be on a wonderful Springbreak that week. OH I can't wait,,just one more week of work and then off for a week YAY!!!
I have did make a new artsy project last sunday. I joined my friend Dotee's doll swap as I just think they are so cute and had to give it a shot. So of course I had to make one to see if I actually have any talent in making the Dotee Dolls. So here is my very first Dotee Doll.
I think she turned out pretty darn cute. She is bigger than the ones I am making for the swap. Well I don't know if you can see the writing on the charm on her necklace, but it says "breathe" on it. I have a very dear friend named Jeanie that lives in Michigan who just had surgery on her sinsuse. So, I sent her in a care package to Jeanie. I hope she likes her. I also made a little collaged microscope pendant for her too.
Its not a real good picture, but its fun to make these little charms. But I am really hyped about the dolls, fun to sew again. I still have a few art quiltie pages to make and hope to get them done while I am on my break. Mom is going to stay with me during my break as my step-dad is going to be in Oklahoma visiting his sons.
So, next saturday on St. Paddy's day, Mom and I are going to Tunica, Mississippi. I know your thinking what the heck is in Tunica. Well its just like Las Vegas but instead of casinos in the desert, they are in cotton fields. We like to go every once in a while, I have never been very lucky there but Mom is the Slot Queen. She will win alot, I come home broke. Its really fun to go on St. Paddy's day because they have alot of fun contests. And we just have fun getting away for the night. It takes about 3 hours to get there, its on the other side of Memphis. While I am headed that way I am going to pick up some brochures at the rest stop on Elvis, as I am doing a altered tin swap and the girl I am to send too loves Elvis.
Tomorrow I am going to go up to Moms because the scrapbook store where she lives is going out of business and is having a hugh sale,,its a must go too,,lol. Then tomorrow afternoon my good friend Ginny is coming over to spend the night. She use to live next door and now lives several miles away in another city, so its always nice to see her and get to visit with her.
Well now I am going to go visit my friends blogs and hope they haven't forgot who I am,,lol. I promise to do better,,but spring has sprung and I have the fever. Hope everyone has a wonderful week-end.
